Powerline tries to understand why Democrats are going all in with impeachment now.
Always wise to go with first impressions.
The Democratic 2020 president field is unbelievably weak. The two front runners are a doddering old fool and a fake Indian whose shrill demeanor and radical ideas assure a Trump re-election. Hence the impeachment crusade is a hail Mary pass intended not just to whip up the Democratic base, but hopefully drive down Trump’s poll numbers. If the election next year is a referendum primarily about Trump, even a mediocre Democrat might win. With the compliant media happy to help out, think of impeachment as a billion-dollar attack-ad in-kind contribution to the 2020 campaign.
